thanks for the feed back. You need to grease the baking tray for sure or you have to use a parchment paper. Else it will stick to the tray

Hi Jeyashri,
I', a fan of ur food blog. I have earlier tried ur custurd powder cookies & it was a hit at my tea party.
I tried the almond cokies, but they were not as crisp & the finished product wasn't similar to urs. The cookies didnt turn golden brown. Should i have baked them for longer? or what else could have gone wrong?

jeyashri suresh April 17, 2014 - 10:53 pm

Thanks for the feedback sapna. Sorry for the delayed reply. Regarding your query,you should have baked this for few more minutes. The time i mentioned differs from oven to oven. this cookies will turn out good

Hi akka,
I am planning to make this cookie today. Cardamom Powder is mentioned twice in the ingredients, so I need to use 1/4tsp and a pinch? or mistakenly you have mentioned?

Tried making the cookies but they didnt turn brown even after baking them for 35 mins and remained chewy.. Very disappointed with the recipe 🙁 a mere wastage of all the ingredients

Baking time differs from oven to oven. Did you bake further more minutes. This will turn out good.

Thanks again for your recipe

How to make soft cookies.. I can't easyly broken it

Reply
jeyashri suresh January 27, 2015 - 2:00 am

If you over bake it, it will be hard and can't break it.If you want soft chewy, then slightly 1-2 mins reduce the baking time.

Hi…I tried these cookies today…and they turned to be really nice and crispy…I took double of each ingredient mentioned but had to take about 5-6tbsp of milk to knead the dough.
Just a suggestion you can view on…can we also add almond extract to enhance the flavor?…i don't get too much of almond flavor in the biscuit as of now.
Overall i will rate this recipe 4/5. Thank you so much for sharing it 🙂
